Post by nimimerkillinen » January 2nd, 2019, 7:10 am

what are your top-x or top-xx favourites for decades past?
im building a top 10/20/25/30 (or less in progress list) for each year so will be good time to watch movies from these years and try to make and widen lists for them
listal hasnt year search function so probably will miss at first some movies especially older decades

startin with 2009 and aiming for top-30 eventually

2009 is a year I have tried to specialise in, it's a surprise to me that in all the years I've been hunting down movies from 2009, no-one ever mentioned The Botany of Desire from what I can recall. I just ordered the Blu-ray, I studied botany at uni so I'm particularly excited about this one. This is a top 32 from 167 watches. Amer at #1 and then descending order of preference.

De laatste dagen van Emma Blank / The Last Days of Emma Blank (2009 - Alex van Warmerdam)
Bunny and the Bull (2009 - Paul King)
Bakjwi / Thirst (2009 - Chan-wook Park)
Melodiya dlya sharmanki / Melody for a Street Organ (2009 - Kira Muratova)
The Missing Person (2009 - Noah Buschel)
Das Vaterspiel / Kill Daddy Good Night (2009 - Michael Glawogger)
Hadewijch (2009 - Bruno Dumont)
Material (2009 - Thomas Heise)
Le hérisson / The Hedgehog (2009 - Mona Achache)
The Sound of Insects: Record of a Mummy (2009 - Peter Liechti)

A Single Man (2009 - Tom Ford)
Splice (2009 - Vincenzo Natali)
Ruhr (2009 - James Benning)
Trash Humpers (2009 - Harmony Korine)
Tatarak / Sweet Rush (2009 - Andrzej Wajda)
The Limits of Control (2009 - Jim Jarmusch)
